MOSTe supports students through comprehensive academic and personal growth-focused programming, designed to inspire the young women in our programs and leverage their strengths. Students enter our programs in the seventh grade, and are supported through college graduation with academic and personal growth workshops, caring mentorship, college visits, career exploration outings, college counseling, financial aid support, application guidance, and more. Further, our programs prioritize the overall development of the young women we serve—we support critical social and emotional growth, soft skills practice, self-advocacy, and the overall wellbeing of our students.
